I’ve been quite conscious of what I eat throughout the day and it’s been working out very well for me. I’m not hungry all the time, nor am I stuffing my face with an excessive amount of calories. I feel good.
And I’ve been going to the gym without a second thought. Instead of talking myself out of it, Ive just reminded myself what the consequences are if I don’t go. I know I ultimately want to be healthy, and even if laying on the couch reading a good book is quite tempting, when I’ve planned to go the gym, I need to go. So I’ve stuck to it.
Overall, I feel great.
Here’s the deal:
I am finally done with the hardest semester I’ve had in my entire college career. Sitting through 36 units worth of classes—that is, twelve classes—took its toll on me greatly. I’ve barely been to the gym and I definitely have had trouble keeping up with healthy eating habits.
So now I’m on winter break until January 9th. I’m moving into an apartment and will not have to be on a stupid meal plan with my college next semester. I’ll be buying all my own food—and that means I have the opportunity to eat everything healthy. I’m excited for this break and next semester.
On top of it all, I’m deciding to go back to my vegetarian ways. I loved when I was vegetarian, but I quit two years ago. Now that I’ll be buying my own food—and thus, will be able to buy foods I need—I’m sticking to vegetarianism. I know a lot about it and am continuing to research it for the health benefits and information on how to make sure I get all the nutrients needed, but I was hoping y’all could help me out with any tips you might have. Maybe you know of some good vegetarian tumblrs I could follow as well. Whatever the case, if you’ve got some advice, I’d love to hear from you.

I lost five pounds while on vacation!
I guess hiking 24 miles in four days does the body some good, right?
So, I’m home now.
And I stayed well on track. My grandma took me shopping and I fit a bunch of the small sizes. Holla for staying in shape while on vacation!
